Carlos in DC: first post
This was the first post of this blog. I have replaced it with a brief summary about Carlos in DC.
Carlos in DC is a personal blog that I started by December 2007. I wanted to write about my personal experiences living in Washington, D.C., about the city, its cultures, spaces, politics, arts and people.
With time, I realized that my blog should focus on the following:
- As a migrant, I write about the impact of the U.S. government policies on the peoples of the Americas, policies created mostly in Washington, DC, especially immigration.
- As a person of Native heritage, I write about Latinos in the U.S. who are mostly Indigenous and Afro descendants among other heritages.
- As a gay Two-Spirit person, I blog also about LGBT rights in the U.S.
I started this blog in WordPress on December 22, 2011 but I quickly moved it to Blogger.
I returned to WordPress on December 2010, after my blog was deleted for 10 hours from Blogger.
By October 2011, again and finally I left WordPress for good, and I’m back with Blogger.
